I know what you’re thinking. “Silly, Victoria. The Fourth of July was weeks ago!” Well, my little darlings, I can be patriotic any day of the week. And with the Olympics steadily approaching, I’m getting all my red, white, and blue ducks in order to celebrate big time and cheer on Team USA! Bread Pudding and the Olympics are two of my all-time favorite things, so why not use one to celebrate the other? It’s a no brainer, folks. And psssst… I will also be hosting an Internationally inspired Olympic party and will have some really fun recipes to share from that as well, so stay tuned.
This particular bread pudding is really amazing. I know that it seems quite simple, just a trifecta of delicious berries, but I must say the flavors really sing! It reminded me a bit of French toast. I think the vanilla extract really highlights that comparison, and the sweet warm berries that burst and flavor this perennial favorite are akin to those one would find in a variety of breakfast treats, including but not limited to French toast and pancakes.
P.S. This bread pudding could also be used to cheer for other countries with the same colors in their flag, such as Great Britain, Australia, and France… but why would you want to?
For some personal reasons, the Bread Pudding of the Month Club was on a bit of a hiatus, but it’s back and better than ever! I’m really looking forward to sharing more of the bread pudding love in the coming months. I really hope you guys are ready for an exciting ride! In honor of its return, I would love to know what is your favorite bread pudding you’ve ever had? It can be one you’ve made, one your grandmother used to make, one you’ve had in a restaurant that you can’t stop thinking about, etc. Please share!! What is the best bread pudding you’ve ever had?? If you have pictures and/or recipes you can email them to me at missionfoodblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will share them in a future post!!
